A .LAY file is a metadata file that is used internally by the DVD burning tools, such as DVD Studio Pro Layout and the DVD project. The .LAY file is stored in the VIDEO_TS folder of the DVD project, and the file contains the layout information of the optical disks. Further, the .LAY file is not written on the DVD disks when the DVD Studio Pro Layout burns the disks.
When you install one of the applications from the list of programs that you found here, you should be able to open or edit the file with the LAY extension without any issue. However, if you still have problems with this, you may use the option of LAY file conversion to a different format.
We hope we helped you solve the problem with the LAY file. If you do not know where you can download the application from our list, click on the link (which is the name of the program) - you will find more information there on the location where to download the secure setup version of the required application.
There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the LAY file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).
First - the LAY file may be incorrectly associated with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this association by yourself. To do this, right-click on the LAY file that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the LAY file should be solved.
Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version of given file, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the LAY file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
If you have additional information about the LAY file, we will be grateful if you share it with our users. To do this, use the form here and send us your information on LAY file.
